.40 is the second-lowest possible final total in Pocket, and I believe a record low. Deplorable playing from start to finish.

I'm surprised all of the last three numbers in OA's correct price were higher. That's won a good chunk of the time, but not today.

Nuts were not good today in advice. What made them so confident in Move that the right answer was wrong? And fell for coffee in Grand, at least the contestant didn't.

Fairly obvious now that Monday's show was inserted with no consideration for the lineup. I had a feeling once cars were 2nd & 6th again on both Monday & Tuesday, but wow, a repeat game should not be happening in October no matter the circumstances.

Worst show of the best week so far, but still a decent affair.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Nice win in Grand Game.
The last time the Target price was that high ( Over $8.00 )  , 10/6/2014 ( $11.00 )

.40 is the second-lowest possible final total in Pocket, and I believe a record low.

I looked it up and you're right , it's a record low.
The Previous low was .45 ( Has happened 4 times , last time it happened: March 2016  )

As excited as I am for it, I think we should all be glad FPG didn't start today considering the lineup. Obviously no one was going to choose One Away, and Grand Game and Pocket Change would have likely been sandbags as well.

While Pocket Change had a very unfortunate selection of cards (there was no way someone could have won with those cards unless they played the game perfectly), Robin didn't play it well at all either. $13,000? To quote SuperSweeper in chat, "this ain't a Versa".

The first showcase was puzzling...a Ford Fiesta would have made a lot more sense there, given the theme.

(Also Jay, you accidentally listed 1 Right Price instead of Double Prices)

Did anyone notice the edit on the second big wheel? It happened on the second spin, last contestant.

Pocket ¢hange had the potential to be a disaster, what with Robin's disastrous picks and her obvious lack of ability to price cars, but Drew managed to make her bad luck into an event and even turned her into the hero of the hour when she won the Showcase Showdown and ultimately the Showcase.  I was even rooting for her by the end.

I wonder what made them play One Away twice this week.

There is no way Grand Game was supposed to be won.

In case anyone's having trouble keeping track, one month in, there's nine games that haven't been played yet -- Bonus Game, Hi Lo, Shell Game, Ten Chances, Golden Road, Switcheroo, 2 for the Price of 1, Rat Race, and Pay the Rent.  I'm pleasantly surprised there's only one Big 3 on that list.
